Sublime Text 2 Bidirectional Language Support – Plugin

Updates
10th Oct 2012 :
Fixed Arabic broken text (letters are not joining) & post updated.

Sublime text 2 has so many brilliant features that saves time & effort. Sublime text 2 supports UTF-8, but right now it lacks capability to handle bidirectional languages like Arabic, Hebrew etc… Sublime BiDi Plugin will enable this shortcoming. Sublimes’s future version may support Right-To-Left Languages. Developers from MENA region will love this feature.
